Omnicell, Inc . introduces its fourth generation Omnicell® G4 platform that includes 11 products to advance medication and supply automation management. The new platform offers a single unified database across the continuum of medications maintained in automated dispensing cabinets with a new intuitive user interface across the products. The G4 platform is designed to help hospitals closely manage medication and supply inventory to reduce costs, comply with increasingly stringent regulatory pressures and safeguard the patient. The G4 platform’s single database across automated medication dispensing cabinets decreases the risk of human error and saves significant pharmacy time by eliminating the need for repetitive entry of drug formularies and rules in multiple locations.
According to the company, the technology allows users to upgrade their medication and supply management solutions with the G4 platform at their desired pace and in a modular fashion, without having to do a whole product replacement. Specifically related to the surgical realm, one of the new products in the G4 platform, each connecting to a single unified database, includes the Omnicell Anesthesia Workstation G4, which is redesigned with a more compact form factor to improve ergonomics and enhance workflow—is an automated dispensing cabinet for the operating room that allows for secure, convenient access to drugs required during surgery and documentation of controlled substances while relieving the anesthesiologist of the tedious task of counting medications. Waste is tracked automatically, and the clinician is prompted regarding unreconciled items at the end of the case.
